We had a chance to see some of the first footage from director Brad Bird's long awaited sequel to The Incredibles! The clip was screened at the D23 Expo over the weekend and you can watch us excitedly talk about it in our "Overreaction" video above! Why do we call it an "overreaction" video? Because we've been told that we tend to overreact. We just decided to embrace that part of our personalities!
Bird revealed details of the upcoming caper, which puts the family into an expanded universe that includes new allies and a brand-new villain. “‘Incredibles 2’ is really a family film, it’s just that the family happens to have super powers,” said Bird. “They may have super speed or super strength, but they experience the same problems as any family.”
Bird went on to reveal that the story for the film will revolve around Elastigirl, not Mr. Incredible. A series of events will lead her on an adventure while Mr. Incredible stays at home taking care of Jack Jack.
Craig T. Nelson will return as Mr. Incredible and Holly Hunter is back as Elastigirl along with Sarah Vowell as Violet, and newcomer Huck Milner as Dashiell, and then, of course, there's baby Jack Jack. Samuel L. Jackson will also reprise his role as Frozone!
Incredibles 2 hits theaters on June 15, 2018.
